traditional worship


Clarkesville First UMC has two traditional worship services each Sunday: 8:30 and 11:00am. These services focus on liturgy, hymns, and observing the traditions of the church. Our Chancel Choir usually participates in the 11:00am service with Joybells (our Hand Bell Choir), Eve'N Us (our Women's Ensemble), or Men of Song (our Men's Ensemble) participating occasionally. There is a children's moment during each service called "The Mystery Box", followed by Children's Church at the 11:00am service. 

We also know that visiting a church for the first time it can be intimating to not know where you are going. We are tried to make that must easier with our church maps, below you can follow each of the links to see where everything is happening and where to be for each service on Sunday mornings!

We invite everyone to be comfortable and come as you are to Clarkesville First UMC, but the attire in our Traditional Worship Services is usually slightly dressier, ranging from business casual to Sunday finest. 


We have plenty of parking options depending on the service you are planning to attend. Our Traditional services meet in our Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is centrally located with parking available in the grass lot beside the steel ramp, the grass lot opposite the Fellowship Hall, or a large parking lot at the back of the campus in front of the ball field. Finally, some of our members choose to park at the Admin Building (Office).


Our Nursery is available for children birth-age 4 during all morning worship services, located in our Children's Wing. Our Nursery Staff, are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for your children, through crafts, music, and age appropriate biblical teaching.
